President's Day at the Dipolmat | Tuesdays with Jacob

President's Day at the Dipolmat

February 21, 2017

One of the best parts of growing up is watching your kids form little friendships with your friend's kids. We spent President's Day down in Hollywood at the Diplomat hotel with some friends who are there on vacation and had the best day together as a family. 

Jacob and Allison are just about a year apart in age, both firmly in the toddler age category. Despite only seeing each other once a year, most recently at Disney World a year ago, they always seem to remember each other. Or maybe kids their age are just willing to play with anyone? Regardless, they always have a great time together. 

We spent quite a bit of time down at the pool swimming and eating lunch. The pool is right on the beach with a gorgeous view of the ocean. There are actually two pools, one which has a super shallow end that is great for kids. There's a kids splash area too with fountains and a water slide, but the water coming out of the fountains was cold.  

In the afternoon we took some downtime before dinner. No naps were enforced, but we figured some quite rest time would be a good idea before having to sit for dinner. The kids watched Trolls on the hotel TV and we walked down to the waterfront and watched the boats. The beer garden wasn't open yet but the kids were more than happy to climb in and out of the car and bus down there and to watch the big boats coming down the intercoastal. 

We ended the night with dinner at Brazillian steakhouse, and while it was our first time, it definitely won't be our last. Sign us up for the Rodizio fan club! We got a good laugh out of Jacob calling the lambchops "lollipops" and despite the sweet moniker, he wouldn't eat any of it! I believe he ate one bite of a roll and a few slices of bacon. Good thing kiddos are free!

 We've already decided we need to take a vacation together next year because one day together once a year just isn't enough for all the fun we have!
